Default Broken turbo unit on 05 PT Cruiser

Hey all,

I just found out that my turbo unit is 'shot'. It makes a 'clanking sound', like I'm dragging a small piece of metal or something. Dealer wants 3k and local auto parts store wants about 1k for a new unit. Looking for some inexpensive options for replacement. I've heard of used replacement units and even repair kits. All suggestions are welcomed.

Try ebay. The turbo for the Neon SRT-4 is the same turbo for the PT. Look in the PT classifieds for someone parting out a PT turbo. Turbos are the same for all years.

They have rebuilt turbos for $350. Install it yourself. It really isn't that hard. Also, try searching for turbo install on this forum, there is a detailed instuction thread on here somewhere. Or, PM me, I can help as I'm going thru an install as I type.

You can also try SRTForums. Lots of stockers floating around with relatively low miles for around $150.

As was already said, the best prices will be on e-bay, SRTForums and then PureTurbos.com.

I've just realized I have the same problem with my 2003 turbo. Dealer quoted 3k just for parts. Don't know how to PM so I am adding a message to the thread.

Could you help me find the turbo install thread on this forum?

Coincidentally I had just found Turbosunleashed.com on the net. I am going to call them to see if they will send me a rebuilt unit (without core) and refund me when I send them my core unit.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
